wpid-20140307_083052 ewI sit
the tick
and tock
of the clock,
a metronome
the passing
of my life,
and waiting
for the
that comes
with the
magic mark
a weekend
away from
here and now.
Blank eyes
why, oh, why
do I wait
alone with
to do?

Yep.  Spring parent-teacher conferences.  In high school special education, you don’t get a lot of parents to talk to.  But I’m putting my time in and sharing with G-Man for Friday Flash 55.

    • All of our students have conferences twice each year. I think special ed parents don’t come to conferences as much because we tend to have more communications throughout the year.

  1. I never missed an chance to speak to one of my kids teachers
    They see them differently than we do
    Loved your Spring Break 55
    Thanks for playing, Thanks for the great effort and thought you take
    each week to always create a Top Notch story
    Have a Kick Ass Week-End

  2. Sort of like being in suspended animation! Very vivid and the structure really works well to enforce the feel of that slow, annoying trickle of time through the hourglass.
